river


Painting by Daria Petrilli via Magpie Tales 


i dig in
my heels 
feel
the pull of water
over sand
the tug of matter
over mine

and the days 
go by

will i never
get better
at letting
go

  8. Such a big question raised in this wonderful poem..perhaps we must hold onto the good..and let go of the bad?
